Oystercatchers in the surf

A small flock of mostly immature oystercatchers (immatures have the partial white neck collar) were on the rocks at Trebetherick point and were trying to gain new rock perches as the tide dropped. This was fine until that extra big wave flipped over the top which saw them taking flight amongst the surf and spray.
